I Love Weddings

I remember back more than 20 years ago holding two precious babies named Amy and Lindsay. No, they're not twins, but they are very close in age. One is my first cousin and the other is my cousin's oldest daughter. They both recently got engaged to be married to some really great guys!! I am so proud of the beautiful women of God that they are and they are going to be such beautiful brides!!

Here is a photo of the happy couples!!
L to R: Brennan and Lindsay....Amy and Johnny

The challenge this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments is "I Do"...a wedding what better way to find inspiration than asking my cousin's about their upcoming weddings.
I was asked to create 2 different wedding favors. One is for Lindsay's wedding and the other is for Amy's.....Click on the photo for a larger view.

The Elegant Eggplant top note box will fit 2 small chocolate truffles inside. Maybe some See's Chocolates?! I used the Scallop Circle punch to make the crinkled up flower on the top of the small box. I wanted to make it look like a Hydrangea since Lindsay plans to have them in her bouquet.

The Cherry Cobbler pouch was made with the Baskets and Blooms Die (retiring in a few weeks). I turned it into the pouch instead of the basket. You could fit a small magnet, keychain or flat shaped candy inside. I filled it with the tissue paper to make it look softer. The flower is the one that comes with the die cut. Cute, huh?!

I can't wait for their weddings!! I am so excited!!

Happy Stamping,
